Sadly, I barely made it two weeks this time. Despite all the positive things you all said to give me courage, I am smoking again. And I do want to quit.
I too quit so many times I could not count. I always failed it seemed even though I was able to stop for 5 years one time.
This time was the charm though. There might be a way for you to quit for good. Take a peek back at the thread and see what worked for me.
Its going to be 5 years again come July.
There is one very remarkable difference this time. I have no desire to smoke.
The last time I quit and started back, I wanted to smoke the entire time.
Will power has nothing to do with quitting. If all that was required to quit was "will power", anyone who wanted to quit would and could at will.
The will to smoke is much stronger than the will to quit. IMHO.
